In the Laboratoire Ondes et Matière d’Aquitaine, we identified a young Ethiopian student, Wendwesen Gebremichael, of a very good level, who came to do his internship in Bordeaux thanks to a scholarship funded by Cluster of Excellence LAPHIA. While waiting to start a CIFRE thesis with him, we were able to keep him by making a donation to the Bordeaux University Foundation to fund his salary for three months in the laboratory.
